Should your fiancee wish to travel to Thailand while on a K1 Visa and she has not married as yet or even after marriage she would need to apply for advance parole to leave the country and to return to the US on the same visa. Without advance parole she will lose her K1 Visa status and the K1 Visa Process has to be started from scratch. This can be very costly to correct. With regards to working in the United States your fiancee once she has received a social security card and employment authorization she will be allowed to work in the US. If the relationship however fails before getting a green card she would need to leave the US and there would be little to no possibility of adjustment of her status. The K1 Visa also does not allow for the extension of the visa before filing for the adjustment of status.
